I am board certified in both internal medicine and pediatrics.
This means that I spend most of my time devoted to caring for whole families, across the age spectrum. I focus on preventive medicine, chronic disease management and coordination of care across the health system.
I’m most interested in quality improvement and improving the delivery of health care for everyone.
What I enjoy most about The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is working with colleagues in various specialties and providing care for whole families in one office.
I enjoy spending time with my two children and husband. I also like reading and spending time outdoors.

Dr. Taj Schaal is an excellent provider. She was my Mother's doctor and I saw how engaged she was with my Mom and providing excellent patient care with empathy. I switched doctors so that she could become my primary care doctor for this reason.
Dr. Taj is a wonderful doctor. She is brilliant, concerned, compassionate, and above all caring. Two years ago I contacted Dr. Taj concerning some health problems. She did the most thorough testing she could but finally sent me to the James. There, I was first diagnosed with MDS which later turned into AML. I recently had a bone marrow transplant and I'm now in remission. During the entire 2 years of treatment, Dr. Taj often called or sent me messages on My Chart. She constantly offered me words of encouragement. I often messaged her and she consistently gave me a quick reply. Sometimes when I was feeling very down, I felt like Dr. Taj was my cheer leader, always keeping my hopes up. She gave me lots of advice that really made a difference. My whole family goes to Dr. Taj and she gave them lots of encouragement during this difficult time. I'm feeling wonderful now but often when I think of Dr. Taj, I get very emotional because of all that she has done for me. I feel so fortunate to have found such a wonderful doctor.
